The Rotary Club of Mountain Home presented a check to the Mountain Home Education Foundation in the amount of $7,000 at their most recent meeting. The donation goes to The Promise program which pays for Mountain Home High School graduates to attend ASUMH. After all other grants and scholarships applied, The Promise pays for up to four semesters within three years of high school graduation.
In addition to the Promise donation, Rotary Club of Mountain Home awarded 10 local students each a $1,000 scholarship totaling $10,000. These students are selected by the scholarship committee based off their submitted applications and remain anonymous to voters until the selections are made.
The opportunity to be able to give the donation and scholarships is made possible by the community’s support of the annual Pancake Day fundraiser among other fundraisers. Each year Rotarian Mary James is triumphant in raising the most funds to help make the scholarships possible.
The recipients for 2022 are: Alexander Jordan (MHHS), Kaiden Reese (MHHS), Kaylee Drake (MHHS), Sarea Snow (MHHS), Madison Schmeski (MHHS), Madison Hall (NHS), Sarah Vacco (MHHS), Kamryn Mahan (MHHS), Afton Massey (CHS) and Abbigale Derden (CHS).
Jennifer Crawford, Executive Director accepted the donation on behalf of the Mountain Home Education Foundation.
